|Examine|| He's looking wicked in the hood.|
Tam McGrubor is a member of the Zoological Magical Institute who hands out wicked hoods to members, regardless of their skill levels. He can be found just outside the Runecrafting tutor area in north-east Burthorpe. When talking to him he will also explain some basic details about how the Runecrafting skill works. He will not give you a second hood if you already have one. If the hood is lost, he will give you a new hood for free.
It is likely that there is a sinister purpose behind his free distribution of wicked hoods, as the Zoological Magical Institute has the same initials as the Zamorak Magical Institute, and it is mentioned in a game FAQ that "You want to wear the Wicked hood. You want others to wear it. Soon, everyone will be wearing one. Tam is pleased. Tam's plans come to fruition."
- Tam McGrubor used to be located in Varrock until 31 January, 2012, at which point he got moved to Burthorpe in accordance with the new Troll Warzone members tutorial.
- It was revealed in the 47th Postbag from the Hedge that Tam McGrubor is not the owner of McGrubor's Wood.
